New Cloud-Hosted Service Simplifies Maintenance, Eliminates Physical Infrastructure and Enables Easier Asset Management
AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands – February 4, 2014 – In its commitment to deliver AV solutions engineered to support an IT world, at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2014, AMX® introduced the European market to the next chapter in the Resource Management Suite Enterprise (RMS) story - RMS Enterprise is now available in the Cloud as a subscription-based, hosted service. RMS is a robust solution for IT and AV managers to centralize the monitoring and management of AV devices and building systems across a campus or facilities worldwide. This announcement underscores AMX support for IT managers by eliminating the onsite maintenance that an RMS Server edition requires.
Now much of the functionality that made RMS so popular can be enjoyed without installing and managing physical infrastructure. As a cloud-based software service, acquisition of RMS AV asset management is easier than ever without the requirement for on-site server setup and management. And the RMS Cloud online service portal allows multiple organization instances to be managed from a single web location.
RMS Enterprise Cloud is also simple to implement using AMX Rapid Project Maker (RPM) for cloud-based configuration with no programming required. RMS Cloud utilizes HTTPS and Java Spring Security to ensure secure transmission of information between the user and hosted service. In RPM, the commissioning of an AMX system that includes RMS is as simple as checking a box and typing an RMS Cloud URL. And since it's cloud-based, there's virtually no startup time or up-front cost – it even includes a one-month free trial.
Now in the Cloud or on the Server, RMS Enterprise provides remote management capabilities for AV assets and building systems and features a user-friendly dashboard making it easy to centralize the management and monitoring of AV equipment, lights, HVAC and other building functions. End users can proactively maintain AV devices before a bulb burns out or receive immediate notification when a display goes offline. IT and AV managers can improve their response times and end users will reduce the amount of lost productivity while waiting for meeting room equipment to function. RMS Enterprise is especially useful for managing conference rooms, auditoriums and data centers where IT and AV managers can benefit from a centralized remote management tool with multiple capabilities to monitor and manage equipment.
